I was born with my lower back deformed. I’ve been taking Lortab and then swapped to Norco . I’ve been taking this medicine for a long time. It does help with my lower back pain till it wears off. I take four pills a day and wear a back brace If there’s anything you can suggest that I can do please do. If surgery is necessary, then i will. I’m just tired of hurting all the time if I don’t have to. I like my family doctor but he seems to be into beauty and botox more and all I have for insurance is Medicaid.
